A Reading Challenge...

Bloghopping this morning brought me to The Lit Bitch (what a great name for a blog!) and her reading challenges for 2012 -- one  in particular.  Running from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012 is the A Song of Ice and Fire Reading Challenge for 2012.  There is also a link in my sidebar.

I am a big fan of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R. R. Martin.  It's five books (so far) about several families vying for power in a mythical place called Westeros.  It's medieval in flavor with a bit of magic thrown in.  Ah yes, dragons, too.   For mature audiences only due to violence, sex, and probably language.  There is also a television adaptation on HBO, "Game of Thrones", starting its second season in April.  GRRM and his latest book, "A Dance with Dragons" both have garnered enormous praise in 2011 and 2012.  All totally earned, as far as I'm concerned.

I've read the first four books -- in paperback.  The 5th is in hardback; I can wait til the paperback is released (probably this fall).  This is a no-pressure, got-all-year reading challenge.  If you want to post comments, reviews, progress -- all are welcome.  Sounds like my kind of thing.  Time to re-read some awesome, addictive books.

Books in Series Order:
  1. A Game Of Thrones.
  2. A Clash of Kings.
  3. A Storm of Swords.
  4. A Feast For Crows.
  5. A Dance With Dragons.
Hope everyone is having a fruitful and productive weekend,

Renee  :)
